Discounts and Deals
One of the best deals in the area is the German Railroad's Bayern Ticket, which allows between one and five people to travel on any regional train and almost all buses in the Alps. Prices range between €23 for a single traveler to €43 for five people. Ticket holders also receive discounts on a large number of attractions in the area, including the Zugspitzbahn, a cog railroad and cable car that takes you up to the top of the Zugspitze. The city of Grainau's ZugspitzCard (three days €53) offers discounts in almost every city near the Zugspitze. Visitors to spas or spa towns receive a Kurkarte, an ID that proves payment of the spa tax, either upon check-in (the nominal fee is already included in your bill) or by dropping in at the tourist office. The document allows discounts and often free access to sights in the town or area. If you've paid the tax, be sure to show the card everywhere you go.
